The History Of The Tesla Super Assembly Line Evolution

Tesla's fortunes were once unpromising. The former chairman of Daimler commented in 2015 that Tesla couldn't even build a door well enough to compete with the great German car companies. seven years later, Tesla's achievements are indisputable. It has four car factories around the world, can produce nearly 2 million cars a year, sold 930,000 cars last year, and is on track to hit 1.4 million sales this year. Tesla's gross margin on the entire vehicle last year was more than 30 percent, well ahead of Toyota, the world's biggest seller (19.6 %), and ahead of rival Tesla's Azera (20.1 %), Xiaopeng (11.5 %) and Ideal (21.3 %).
